start answering my ?'s or I'm leaving!

this is for (I think) dead politics;

did Bobby sing the headlight line on IKYR as much as Jer pre-hiatus?

No, only once, as far as I know.

My mistake... Here it is, and he's right. It starts at about 3:15

Bobby is a good singer in his own right but Jerry could really power through those lines, love the second "i wish i was" with Phil bombs and power chords :)

Bobby sang that line?! Blasphemy, the monks are displeased. Was listening to a random '80's show and heard Jerry sing this line twice, sounded very angry

I feel the same way about Bobby destroying,"So Many Roads,"on Further,as well as,"Days Between."Those are two songs that require the singer to have gone through special circumstances in his own life,for the true essence of what he is trying to get across can only then,hit you like a ton of bricks!...Jerry lived and "walked those Roads"and spent many a night,"sittin`on a shelf,collectin`dust."...His character and "cover"(his look),gave you the sense,that he had been waiting his entire life,just to perform certain tunes,such as those.Then,after hearing them,you know for certain he was!.....Though I enjoy hearing them at Further,IMO,....especially"SMR"should kinda like be retired,outta respect for the man who Lived the story and walked the Roads.....Rest easy Jerry,our love never Fades!

"Those are two songs that require the singer to have gone through special circumstances in his own life"

eh... that seems like a pretty lame criticism. anybody can sing any song and pull it off, it doesn't matter what the specifics of your life have been.

"anybody can sing any song and pull it off"
Since when?

Never cared for 'So Many Roads' but I surely hope none of these guys have been silly enough to attempt 'Days Between' or 'Lazy River Road' in any of their post-95 endeavors.
I would know if they'd tried 'cept I've never paid much attention. Somebody else can put Bob's kids through college.

what i mean is, anybody has the *potential* to sing any song and pull it off - i believe that no one is truly limited by their life background or race or whatever in their ability to express themselves through any song. that's not to say that everyone is CAPABLE of doing so, but i don't agree with the idea that only certain people can sing certain songs.

Well said. Otherwise we might have to agree Clapton shouldn'y play 'Crossroads,' etc.
But I do feel for example that 'Days Between' and 'LLR' are completely off limits for different reasons. They are very powerful it seems- the equivalent of a summation, a goodbye. Just hallowed ground material- way above some of the other late-era stuff like 'Black Muddy River' and 'Believe It Or Not.'
i'm disappointed the other band members don't feel the same way. We're only talking a song or two here, not the whole Jerry/Hunter canon. If somebody wants to wing 'Sugaree,' I say go for it..... but have some sense that not all songs are the same.

well i would disagree with you, but i have to say that when i heard furthur do "days between" they didn't really do it justice. it was good, of course, but it lacked some amount of sadness that made that song really great.

Exactly!
To me the lack of sadness is why Further would probably be better off leaviing it alone.
There's plenty of Pink Floyd matreial they haven't covred yet to fill the void.

The 80's have a lot of really nice Jerry roars... sometimes he could really pull it off without the kermit the frog gargling tacks effect. Just a raw,emotive, full bodied, beastly roar
